they only do that on the first focal plane models. that's substantially more expensive...

Re: MOA reticles, anyone use them?

Congratulations on the new NF w/ MOA reticle.

I am assuming that a tactical match requires you to quicky range, compensate, and shoot??

I've been using a NF w/ MOA reticle for coyotes since the early/mid 90's. I memorize my trajectory and wind drift in inches out to 600 yds. Coyotes usually don't give a person much time, so the reticle works wonderfully for holdover/windage when a quick shot is required. Very easy to covert inches of drop/drift to moa in my head and on the fly..........I couldn't do the same thing nearly as quick with the Mil reticles.

27" low at 500.......27/5 = 5 2/5 = just a shade under 5.5 moa holdover or 5 moa plus 2", however you want to look at it.
Takes me about a second, what could be simpler?? LOVE A MOA RETICLE!!!

Congrats and good luck!

We sold a lot of MOA on MOA scopes but more and more shooters are going to MIL on MIL. The NPR1 was the one we sold the most of.

We sale Nightforce and a lot of other great scopes makers.
